(AOF) – Advent has rarely been so feverish in markets which should start the session indecisive. Investors are reassured by the $ 900 billion stimulus plan adopted in the United States after months of palaver. However, this good news, already generally integrated in the courses, is jostled by the propagation of a variation of the Covid a priori even more contagious.

Technical analysis of the CAC 40
From a graphical analysis point of view, the DayByDay design office observes a doji, a candle without a body with long high and low wicks. This candle generally reflects a balance between buyers and sellers except that it is preceded by a large bearish gap. This means that after the sharply lower opening, neither side gained the advantage. It is therefore necessary to push the support at 5,343 points at the end to trigger a significant correction wave in the direction of 5,096 points.
